We perform gastroscopy, colonoscopy, electronic nasopharynx, laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy and ultrasound endoscopy examinations for more than 20,000 people each year. More than 3,000 cases of various endoscopic treatments are performed every year. We performed more than 12,000 cases of painless endoscopy.
